Web Push Notification can be easily integrated in a WordPress website/blog with our plugin. Once configured you will be able to send notifications automatically.

Setting up Push Notifications with Wordpress Plugin

  • Login to the Wordpress dashboard and click on Plugins > Add New. Then search for PushAlert in the right search bar, and click on install. Alternatively, you can also download the plugin from the Wordpress plugins page and upload it yourself.
  • Activate the plugin, once it has finished installing. Then head to Settings > PushAlert. Here you will see account specific keys that need to be entered for the plugin to work.
  • Now, login to PushAlert and jump into the Integrate section. Click on WordPress and you will find your unique REST API Key and Website ID. Switch to the Plugin's settings page, enter both values and save changes.
  • Depending on whether you have a HTTP or HTTPS website, this step will differ. If you have a HTTP website which is using our branded subdomain (*.pushalert.co), the integration is complete. For HTTPS websites, you just need to copy files listed in the Integrate section to the root of your website.
  • Once you have completed the above step, the opt-in prompt will be automatically shown to visitors on both desktop as well as mobile devices. No coding required. PushAlert HTTP 1-Click Opt-in

What does the WordPress Plugin do?

  • It automatically adds the Integration code with a script tag in the <head> section of your website with customized settings from your PushAlert Dashboard.
  • Once activated, you will see the PushAlert notification widget right next to the WordPress editor above the Publish options.
  • After composing a post, just customize the text in the PushAlert notification widget with a custom Title and Message. Then check the Push notification on publish option and once you hit publish for the post, the notification will be automatically sent to all your subscribers.
  • If you want to send a notification later, you can login to the PushAlert Dashboard and send or schedule it there.

How to track conversions with Google Analytics?

  • In the PushAlert plugin settings, you can set UTM parameters to track conversions.
  • Just add custom values for the campaign source, medium and name. These will be appended to the URL being sent with the push notification.
  • You can then track the campaign by defining the source of traffic in Google Analytics.
